This rivalry takes place in the realm of the beautiful game and it features the Glasgow based titans of the Scottish Premier League, Celtic and Rangers, better known as the Old Firm.
It's Catholic vs Protestant.
It's Irish vs British.
It's without question one of the most heated rivalries in the sports world and it may be coming to our town.
Rumors of a proposed Old Firm match at Gillette Stadium sometime this summer are flooding the internet. This international friendly, if it takes place, would be the biggest international friendly played at Gillette. No previous friendly featuring clubs or national teams at Gillette can touch the intensity of an Old Firm match.
I spoke with a New England Revolution official, who would be the host club in the event of this possible friendly, and he denied the rumor.
Still, things are scheduled in such a way that a Celtic-Rangers match at Gillette would work perfectly for the two clubs who will be touring North America this summer. Both clubs would stand to make a pretty penny from the first Old Firm match outside of Scotland, drawing fans from their extremely loyal supporters across North America and likely the world.
